At its Universe conference in San Francisco, GitHub announced handy new features that have been added to its code repository hosting platform, which have been designed to make it easier to collaborate on software projects.
GitHub now offers a project management tool to help you organize issues and pull requests in a Kanban-style interface, which should be familiar to Trello users.
You can create as many projects as you like in each of your repositories, and then set up columns to represent different phases in your project or issue types such as bugs , must-have features and interface enhancements .
Once you ve put a project together, you can drag and drop issues and pull requests made by others into these columns and prioritize them however you please.
The service has also added Reviews, which should make it easier to critique collaborators code.
GitHub already allowed you to comment on specific lines of code, but you can now approve or request changes to pull requests.
